Simple as, really. I have quite dark hair on my arms which I don't really like and I once considered shaving it off, but a girl I knew did that and when it grew again it was all stubbly. I just can't be bothered with that kind of maintenance. It's already an effort to shave my legs.

So, girls do you shave your arms?

Guys, do you prefer girls with hair-free arms or do you like a little bit of fuzz?

[EDIT]
Please note that I mean ARM HAIR, not ARM-PIT HAIR.

Because it has been requested, here are photos of my arm hair...

[EDIT]

I seem to have made a lot of you unnecessarily self-conscious... sorry about that...

[EDIT] Apparently my arms look like they belong to a man. Thanks guys. Thanks for that.

Hair-free, for sure. Why not just wax or get hair removal cream?

I immediately assumed this was about armpits and questioned why this was even being asked.

So long as you don't have hairy gorilla arms, it's fine.

I got light skin and blonde hair but I still choose to remove the hair from my arms. Either hair removal cream, epilating or trimming. My hair has never been stubbly, still baby soft.

When I see girls with dark hairs on their arms, I also think they should remove them..but in the end it's up to you what you want to do.

Why would you do this??
I mean, I can mildly understand with dark hair, but this is beyond me...

100% with you on this one, unless you look like a gorilla surely it is just unnecessary

No, way too much effort. My arm hair is pretty unnoticeable, but I still wouldn't bother shaving unless it was abnormally dark and thick.

Shaving my arms has never even crossed my mind until I saw this... I have dark hair but the hair on my arms is very thin and there isn't a lot of it at all. Is this a common thing??

Asian = noticeable dark hair = unsightly = veet time

Just did mine yesterday, :sogood: so smooth, I could stroke my arms forever.

I don't shave any part of myself. Can't be bothered/it's winter, I need the warming fur/I'm beautiful how I am/etc..

As long as you make sure you sort out your moustache, its not a big deal

I did once when I was in school, because all the girls were doing it. Kind of regret it now, cause it came back darker, but I honestly don't care how hairy my arms are anymore (it's not really really dark, just a tiny bit darker)
I don't think I'll ever shave them again, 'cause I don't really see the point, and it'll take far too much effort and I like my arms, even if they are hairy

Yep, ever since I overheard two guys discussing/making fun of my arm hair when I was thirteen... didn't even realise they were that hairy :')

Oops, thought this was talking about armpits, so i voted yes on the poll lol.

But no, I don't shave my arm hair. I think that is pointless. Some of my friends do and it always grows back stubbly and it feels so disgusting to brush up against their arms...

I mean, I can mildly understand with dark hair, but this is beyond me...
Because I have long blonde hair which I find unattractive. To others it might be no big deal, but to me it is. I feel more confident bearing my hairless arms
